I love fall! Sweaters, school starting, and of course the beautiful foliage... One of my favorite things to do on cards is to make wreath. When I saw the Impression Obsession Little Small Leaf Set, I knew I would make a wreath with it. I first used all the colors from this week's Classy Cards 'n Such inspiration photo on my watercolor paper.
Then I swiped some Tim Holtz Antique Bronze Distressed Stain over my dried paper to give the leaves a little extra shimmer. This is a great way to make your own designer paper when you want a particular set of colors. I used my Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A to cut out my bottom layer and the small leaf dies for my wreath. I used about 6 sets to make my wreath. I made a circle template with some circle punches and then glued my leaves on a sheet I had embossed with a brick embossing folder. I added a sentiment from ODBD Ornate Frame Sentiments with copper embossing powder on vellum. To make the sentiment pop a little more, I added a layer behind the vellum from some scraps and adhered it all by sewing along the edge of the banner.
Thank you for looking and hope you get a chance to play along!
